Most DM dissertations are based on one or more foundational concepts and theories found in the management or leadership literature. Although your discoveries may result in new knowledge, the conclusions of your research can be connected to the body of scholarly management research. Review all of the theories (and research additional theories if needed) that were discussed in the course.
- Identity the leadership theory that forms (or is closest to) the basis of your dissertation research interests.
- Create and attach a mind map showing the visual connection between the leadership theory that you selected and your dissertation research interest.
